Best gift..

Yesterday night I got a call from a good friend and he ask me if I would like to take some pictures inside of a helicopter for a surf contest today... I never got a ride in a helicopter, so this was a sick opportunity... and I felt this as a big gift from my friend Herbert and Pardhal... thanks guys.
Here's one of the photos that I took and this is the place that we will have the II Santos SurfArt.
Aloha from Brasil.

From left to right...
Carlinhos Argento, Biro, Eduardo Argento and Homero.
Carlinhos and Eduardo are the Twin brothers that was one of the biggest surf brands in Brasil.
Classic guys and all around good and gentle guys..
Biro is a shaper from Sao Paulo that lives and shapes in the North Shore of O'ahu.
And Homero is probably the biggest legend of surfing from Brasil. As a shaper, he's the most influencial one.
This was taken on the Festivalma 2008, in Sao Paulo.

Musica Surfica... Kindly, Mr. Mick Sowry send me the film and i can't wait to see it...

Today she called me and said that she did a piece about me and she wants to give it to me…
